Three weeks ago, when Nabil, his wife Rima and their two children arrived at the ASRC they hadn’t eaten for days. After Nabil was stood down from his job because of COVID-19 and with no Government safety net, the family’s money quickly ran out.
“My daughter has Asthma, when I lost my job we can not afford medication and food. I was so scared for her, for all of us”
But today, because of the compassion of our community, the family is at the ASRC picking up bags full of groceries and a pharmacy waver (to access their daughter’s asthma medication for free).
“Tonight I might sleep for the first time in so many nights, thank you”, said Nabil.
This is the power of every donation and what we can achieve when we stand together for people seeking asylum.
Because of the generosity of our community this month the ASRC has been able to continue our ongoing work while providing practical support and casework advice to more than 40 new people, every day.
Below is just a snippet of what the ASRC has been able to provide in the last month thanks to the generosity of our community.
